Scott Speaks to Autumn
| "Hi, Autumn!" Scott cried, as he wheeled himself into her room.
"Scott!" she cried, and smiled benignly. "My favorite cousin! How are ya doin', buddy?"
"Pretty good!" scott answered.
"What brings you here?" Autumn wanted to know.
"Well, there's a girl in my class at school, Sierra, who's sick. she in the seizure ward," scott explained.
"Oh, that's too bad," Autumn sympathized. "I'll maybe go down and visit her on my walks through the hospital. What's she like?"
"She's nice, she saved a boy in our class' life!" Scott told Autumn.
"Really? How?" Autumn asked.
"Well, he has CP and he was on the bars and Sierra saved him, and now they're good friends," Scott answered.
"That's really cool," Autumn said, 'I bet she was proud of herself."
"Nah, she's not like that," Scott replied.
Autumn smiled. "I didn't mean bragging, I just meant she was probably happy to make a new friend."
"Yep, I bet she was!" Scott said.
"Is she happy, Scott?" Autumn asked softly.
"Yeah, she is, but Miss Anela ... my teacher ... she's worried about her, I think," Scott said tentatively.
"Well, as long as Sierra's happy and confident, I'm not worried," Autumn assured her cousin.
Just then, Kyle entered.
"Hiya, Autumn, how are you?"
"Oh I"m doing well, thanks. Just having a little chat with Scott," Autumn answered him.
"Well, we've gotta go for now, I'm sorry to say, but we'll be back," Kyle said, wheeling Scott out the doorway.
"Bye, Autumn!" Scott called happily, waving from his chair.
"See you soon, I'm sure," Kyle told Autumn as they departed.
Autumn waved farewell, peace in her heart, and formulating a plan about what she should say to Sierra, what advice she could give. Being an experienced seizure victim herself, she wanted to pass on some wisdom. As she drifted off to sleep, several thoughts and ideas blew around her mind, like leaves, fluttering in an autumn wind.
